Elaine reports :-

15 walkers welcomed in 2020 with a 7 mile stroll from Manfield to Cleasby on New Year’s day.  The muzzy heads of some were soon cleared as we stepped out over the fields and tracks on a surprisingly mild winter’s morning.  With the sun glistening we enjoyed our lunch on the green at Cleasby.  Mentioned in the doomsday book as “Clesbi”.  The manor had been the possession of a local named Thor, but passed to Enisant Mussard after the Norman invasion.

The group – a mixture of CHA walkers and Darlington/Richmond Ramblers, enjoyed a post walk drink at the very welcoming The Crown Inn.  “Happy New Year”!!
